Thanks for that.

You cannot set anything other than wireless SSID manually two of the Roku 
devices I have, and you can only see the DHCP-assigned IP address. The third 
has a wired network connection in addition to WiFi, but I don't recall how that 
is set up. I'll have to look. They're all recent models with up to date 

I've seen quite a bit of "secret menu" information already. A lot of it is out 
of date. Many of the secret menu key sequences no longer work, and those that 
do don't show IP details that aren't already available normally.

The developer info is interesting, but I didn't find anything about seeing IP 
details. Apparently telnet doesn't drop into a general purpose shell, but 
rather one of a few in-built debugging consoles with a focus on app developers. 
I'll poke around a bit more. I should sign up as a developer - maybe there is a 
way to write an app that will display that information. LOL.
